Spartan vs. Predator

The very best Spartan with full battle gear against a Predator alien creature without his technology, just some of his hand to hand combat weapons.

I say the Spartan brings him down in 2-5 minutes...

Re: Spartan vs. Predator

Oh well without his technology, then yeah the Spartan! Poor Predator...Give him his technology, with his invisible gadget and his heat seeking stuff and his cra-ray-ze weapons, and the Spartan's a dead man....in fact a whole legion of them are dead...Love the Predator...really need to watch that film again, its been far too many years since I did.

Re: Spartan vs. Predator

Sure the cra-z alien stuff and laser gadgets would do a number, but it would be realyy fun to see the big Predator actually get his backside smacked bad.

Re: Spartan vs. Predator

Ok, I get it - you like Spartans.
However, the Predator is incredibly strong and even without laser cannon and invisibility thingy is a skilled hunter, adept at ambush. The Spartan is a warrior, not a hunter. If he saw him coming, he may do ok, but more likely the first time he'll be aware of the Predator is when that discus-thingy slices his head off.

Re: Spartan vs. Predator

This is Spartan27...actually my ancestors were from Sparta.

He wouldn't slice off his head, the discus would get stuck in his brooze shield and then it would be all over for the big guy....the spartan would slice him up as sushi....

Re: Spartan vs. Predator

If all you're going to do is go "Woo, yeah! Spartans rock!" and refuse to entertain any contrary opinions then there's no point anyone responding to your posts, is there?

Re: Spartan vs. Predator

But to be fair, Spartan27 didn't just go "woo, yeah!" but did come back with a valid idea.
Although I do feel that this thread will probably grind yo a halt soon, I'm sorry, but it's not a conversation that everyone will feel inclined to get into, it's a bit too specific!

Re: Spartan vs. Predator

Danny Glover did it despite the Predator with his tech.

I say Danny Glover would crush the Spartan, too, without his armour and sword.

Re: Spartan vs. Predator

The Predator is too big, too strong, and too weapons-savvy to lose to a Spartan. The Spartans were game, but to a Predator, a Spartan would look like a wild-eyed, caffeine-driven shuttlecock. The Predator would toy with him for amusement, but the bottom line would be another skull on the wall and a bronze helmet to use as a carafe.

IF the Spartan had seen the movie, and had time to cover himself with mud, he might be able to escape a gruesome death, but that would be the best he could hope for.

Re: Spartan vs. Predator

This is Spartan27....I did say that the Predator would have no technology at his disposal only hand-to-hand combat stuff, and if that is the case, did I hear sushi anyway..or should I say crab cakes?

Re: Spartan vs. Predator

So, is the Predator empty-handed, or does he have his wrist-knife thing and his telescoping-spear deal? If he's empty-handed and the Spartan has knife, sword and shield, then the edge goes to the Spartan. If the Predator is (appropriately, in this context) afforded the afore-mentioned weapons, I don't see how the Spartan stands much of a chance. I'm sure your family are nice people, and I applaud your home-team spirit, but the cold reality is that your warrior would be in tough against a seven-foot-tall adversary who can lift Arnold Schwarzenegger with one hand.

Re: Spartan vs. Predator

Hello Paige..this is Spartan27,

I will allow the Predator his spear and his telescopic hand blades but that's it, maybe I'll throw in the discus for good measure,

The Arnold (steriod man) is not a Spartan from 480 BC. And basically in hand to hand combat with no weapons would have ended Arnold in a heart beat.

No head or helmut trophy for the Predator this time, probably would have better luck against a Roman.

Re: Spartan vs. Predator

If he's got his discus then NO ONE stands a chance against him! You wouldn't even be able to get near him, he'll have your head off before you even spot him!

Re: Spartan vs. Predator

I think we'd better start a thread called "Spartan vs. Larry," and if concensus sees the Spartan through that ordeal, he can move on the considerably greater challenge of the Predator.
